Our employees are important to us!
This year's anniversary celebration took place on October, 20th. We welcomed our long-serving employees in a festive setting at the Johanniterbad in Rottweil. After being welcomed by our Managing Directors Bernhard Lehr and Andreas Müller and Works Council member Uwe Grimm, the 25 year anniversaries were honoured. All looked back on 1998, the year they joined the company, and puzzled over sporting highlights or the price of petrol and beer.
After soup and salad, we continued to honour our 10-year anniversaries before moving on to the main course. The party continued in a convivial atmosphere until late in the evening.
We would like to thank all those who celebrated their anniversaries for their dedication and commitment.

Taking part at the company run for the first time
This year we took part at the company run in Villingen-Schwenningen for the first time. With a team of around 30 people, we proved our fitness level. The route led along the exhibition grounds, past the Neckartower and through the nearby woodland.
Everyone reached the finish line in different times. The fun factor was definitely high on this evening. We will definitely be back next year.

Our MS Summer Party
Our annual staff party took place in bright sunshine.
The first visitors arrived around 2pm. We offered cold drinks and cocktails. With vegetarian maultaschen, schnitzel and potato salad, there was something for everyone. Our managers were responsible for serving drinks and food.
A special highlight was our MS photo. We would like to thank everyone who attended.
Each participant also received a new MS XTEC shirt. The day was rounded off in a social atmosphere that lasted well into the evening.

NEXT MOVE: New company name and new location
It's done: MS Powertrain is now called MS XTEC!
As a company that is constantly evolving and can now offer more technologies, performance and services than ever before, it was time for us to evolve our identity as well.
The "MS", originating from the original "Maschinenfabrik Spaichingen" and the affiliation to the MS Industrie Group, remains in the new name. The "X" stands for our flexible and adaptable manufacturing orientation for all industries, "TEC" reflects the complex technologies and state-of-the-art manufacturing concepts we offer. As MS XTEC, we are now ready to impress our customers and partners with even more manufacturing power and service strength.
By the way: We have also made the step across the pond! In the USA, we will soon be opening our new location in the Charlotte region of North Carolina. At this location, too, we will appear as "MS XTEC" and thus communicate uniformly across all locations.
As MS XTEC, we are not only expanding our capacities, but also our portfolio for new industries and applications that are no longer restricted to the powertrain sector as in the past. As in the past, we will continue to work in powertrain areas such as heavy-duty transport (H2Ready), vans and alternative drive systems. New additions include solutions for agricultural and industrial applications and, at the U.S. location, in the aero, defense, medical and aftersales areas. Further information will follow.

Sustainability and health weeks
At the start of 2021, MS introduced themed weeks on issues that matter to us all. In the first quarter, we spent a week dealing with the topic of sustainability. Employees received first-hand information on the sustainability topics and projects of MS. As part of it, the first "MS-Kilometer-Challenge" , which was coupled with a photo contest, was held. It successfully got teams to get on their bikes. Their reward: Two coupons for a bicycle dealership of their choice.
A "Health Week" followed in July. It kicked off with a talk on "Brain food – focused and effective" (in cooperation with the AOK health insurance provider). Up next was the topic of healthy nutrition. We provided our employees with fresh fruit and delicious smoothies and offered online exercises they can do while taking a quick break from work. A joint honey breakfast concluded the week.

MS XTEC earns MTU Supplier Award 2020
We are thrilled! In spite of the challenging conditions, MS XTEC GmbH has won the 2020 MTU Supplier Award. MTU recognized us as as one of its 12 best suppliers across the globe. Our Bronze Award means we are among the very best suppliers in the entire EU. Since the award ceremony was not held in its regular format due to the pandemic, there was an online ceremony in which we were presented with our award.
Thanks to all involved – and especially our "MTU Team" in the administrative and production departments for their contribution to this achievement.
